Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Mind Crawler

Having been selected to support Black Sabbath on tour - whenever that ends up being - Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats release the second single from their wonderful third album Mind Control on limited edition coloured 7” vinyl. ‘Mind Crawler’ comes backed with a menacing cover of Charles Manson’s ‘Get On Home’.

Witchskull
A Driftwood Cross

Witchskull so what you think they may say on the tin by making the biggest load of sludgy doom metal you ever heard. The Australian trio are known for their monolithic riffs and explosions of pure, fierce energy that sakes its cue from Black Sabbath but over the course of three albums has been honed to a pummelling racket. These people are artisan riff makers, their lives depend solely on the heaviness of their sludge. It's time to worship. 

Giuda
Interplanetary Craft

Interplanetary Craft is the new single by Italian band Giuda, taken from their recent album E.V.A. This phase of the band has been linked to late-era Manc punk band Blitz meets early Duran Duran. Hooky pop-rock with a new wave edge. On the B side is a cover of Life’s Too Long by Glasgow band Earl Brutus.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Very Uncertain Times

These are indeed very uncertain times, and to emphasise this fact, Hastings proto-metalers Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell return with their fourth album, Very Uncertain Times. Despite the album’s pessimistic title, the band are here to blow your cares away and make everything seem a-okay once again. On Rise Above.

Workshed
Workshed

Workshed is the new project from former Cathedral members Adam Lehan and Mark Wharton. They continue their intense doom metal sound on a scathing album full of powerful riffs and severely pissed off vocals. Possibly not one to play to the children at bedtime it's further proof that these long dormant metal legends still have the bit between their teeth a quarter century after their most revered work.

Cain
Cain

Another metal re-issue on Rise Above this time from Birmingham travellers Cain. They were made up of members of Doom and Extreme Noise Terror and were notable for infusing their sludgy riffing with influences from psychedelia, industrial music but most intriguingly sampling and ambient soundscapes. Sorta somewhere between Loop and Celtic Frost states the press release. Nothing if not unique.  

Giuda
E.V.A.

Ooh I do like a bit of glam rock, always happy to see that there are bands making more of it. One of those bands is Giuda from Rome, whose fourth album E.V.A. is also their first for Rise Above. The music is of course charmingly schlocky, and more confident than it has any right to be. But as with all good glam rock, the songwriting is good enough that you probably won't care.

Danko Jones
A Rock Supreme

Now, A Rock Supreme is a pretty bold title to choose for your album, and whether the new one from Canadians Danko Jones achieves enough greatness to warrant the presence of Coltrane’s ghost or not is up to you. What you can be sure of though is lots of high-rock, high-energy rock action, delivered at speed and without too much self-seriousness. On Rise Above.

Twin Temple
Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound.... Satanic Doo-Wop)

If you say that you have a signature sound but have to spell out what your signature sound is immediately afterwards then is it even your signature sound? Not to split hairs or anything, just an observation. Anyway, at least Twin Temple have the courtesy to let you know what you’re getting into with a title like Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound…. Satanic Doo-Wop). All you Postmodern Jukeboxers out there will enjoy Twin Temple’s wiccan Winehouse shtick.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Wasteland

Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats return with their most powerful album to date. The band recorded at Sunset Studios in LA and have come up with a raw an exuberant sound that promises to blow away most of the psych rock rabble that follow in their wake. A mixture of psych rock anthems and darker more politically aware material that could well be their biggest statement to date.   

Orange Goblin
Coup De Grace

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Coup de Grace is their 2002 fourth album, and it is such a consummate riff-chugging stoner metal release that John Garcia himself, of the legends Kyuss, even lends a hand on two tracks. Vinyl reissue from Rise Above.

Orange Goblin
Thieving From The House Of God

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Thieving From The House Of God arrived in 2004 as the band’s fifth album, and it found them adjusting to a smaller four-piece line-up. Of course, this merely focused the group’s riff-chugging power further. Rise Above reissue.

Giuda
Rock N Roll Music

Just so they didn’t accidentally filter out any of the natural raw power of their stage performance, Italian rock band Giuda recorded their latest aptly named single, Rock ‘N’ Roll Music, live. The band have one foot in the ‘70s classic rock camp, whilst the other is firmly rooted in UK punk. If you like the idea of Slade tempered with a bit of Slaughter And The Dogs, then this is for you. Green vinyl 7" on Rise Above.

Witchskull
Coven’s Will

Any guesses? Yep that’s right, Coven’s Will by Witchskull is heavy riff-chugging stoner metal! Coven’s Will is positively dripping with mystical supernaturalism and overdriven guitar chugs, the kind of thing that could overwhelm an unprepared mind. All the way from Australia, but sounding like the product of a thousand-year forest. Released by Rise Above.

Age Of Taurus
The Colony Slain

Let me tell you, being a Taurus ain’t easy. You live in constant fear of change, of disruption, and of movement. The last thing we need is an epoch in which the defining characteristics are shared with the bull sign. But doom-metallers Age Of Taurus clearly think differently. On The Colony Slain, their follow-up LP to the light-hearted romp that was Desperate Souls For Tortured Times, they make such a heavy racket that it could shake the earth (sign).

Octopus
Supernatural Alliance

Octopus are a heavy psych rock band from Detroit and are not to be confused with several other bands from the annals of musical history with the same name. They are helmed by former Electric Six guitarist J Frezzato. Their intention is not just to peek inside the doors of perception, but to blow them wide open and start a psych rock revolution. They aim to do this with their new album, Supernatural Alliance. LP and CD on Rise Above, LP is limited to 300 copies.

Septic Tank
Rotting

Band: Septic Tank. Album: Rotting. What else could it be but high-speed angry hardcore punk!?! Septic Tank are in fact 90’s veterans, with members of Cathedral and Repulsion among their numbers. They now return to bludgeon 2018 with eighteen tracks of entropic ferocity, circulated to the people by the Rise Above label.

Troubled Horse
Revolution On Repeat

Trouble Horse are a ‘proper’ old heavy metal / hard rock outfit from Sweden, doing the thing they love in correct style. With tracks like ‘My Shit’s Fucked Up’ and ‘Let Bastards Know’ (er, and ‘Track7’), they aren’t fucking about here: Revolution On Repeat will delight fans of high drama and heavy riffs. Out on Rise Above.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Vol. 1

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a band so firmly dedicated to their heavy rock history that they originally released Vol. 1 on the exact forty year anniversary of the first Black Sabbath album, on Friday the 13th of February in 2010. Seven years later, that limited CDr release has been upgraded to a fully remastered CD and vinyl reissue, on the Rise Above label!

Sheavy
The Electric Sleep

Canadian stoner metal at its finest, that is sHeavy. Known for their frantic vocals and relentless, endless riffs, the band have earned their place in stoner rock cannon. Thankfully, 2015 will see the reissue of their critically acclaimed The Electric Sheep from 1998, which was never released on vinyl. Until now, of course.

With The Dead
Love From With The Dead

The second full length album from Lee Dorrian (Cathedral) fronted supergroup With The Dead. With Tim Bagshaw (ex-Electric Wizard) and new members Leo Smee (Chrome Hoof) and Alex Thomas (ex-Bolt Thrower/Bat For Lashes). Insanely heavy, destructive and nihilistic, head crushing riffs. LP on Rise Above.

Beastmaker
Inside The Skull

New heaviness from Beastmaker, who make their music with the fiery axe-driven approach hewn by the greats of heavy metal. Inside The Skull chugs hard through ten tracks of riffed-up metal horror-schlock, with song titles including ‘Nature Of The Damned’ and ‘Now Howls The Beast’. Out on Rise Above.

Ides Of Gemini
Women

Having built a great reputation for themselves, Ides Of Gemini have released a ten-track record entitled Women. This release explores the vast areas of post-punk and proto-goth that has you questioning whether or not they are actually exactly the same genre or polar opposites! Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Galley Beggar
Heathen Hymns

Gallery Beggar have released an eight-part record entitled Heathen Hymns. A solid and genuine release that captures so many different areas of psychedelic folk music, many of which have never explored before! This release has been described as unequivocal triumph for creativity and is available Vinyl LP and CD.

Saturn
Beyond Spectra

Mixing Judas Priest riffery with a psychedelic groove, there is certainly a nod to their 70s heroes here, but Saturn’s sophomore full length hold their cannons facing firmly towards the future. Good old leather jacket and denim pants heavy metal come rock and roll here, hell… leather pants, V-shaped guitars, and fists in the air.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Keep It Greasy!

Simply said, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell don’t give a damn, they just wanna play, drink, and stick loud music in your face. Hasting’s answer to Motorhead are crass and boisterous. So, grow those mutton chops, get your leather pants and bullets belt, and get on the road with some completely unabashed and unapologetic rock and roll.

Blood Ceremony
Lord of Misrule

Blood Ceremony’s fourth album Lord of Misrule is so indisputably a classic-style British rock album that it delves into themes of paganism and mystik mythic old Britain. Plus lots of big riffs. The album is available on CD or 180g vinyl: take your pick from black, white and red vinyl versions. On Rise Above.

Beastmaker
Lusus Naturae

Beastmaker are a new band who are deeply in love with the heavy British hard rock of years gone by: plenty of Black Sabbath is audible here, not to mention the pagany-horror aesthetic the band cloak their releases in. Lusus Naturae is available on CD or 180g red vinyl editions: from the Rise Above label.

With The Dead
With The Dead

With The Dead are a supergroup, although they’re not so keen on the term. They are a heavier-than-heavy metal trio made up from Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening of Electric Wizard and Lee Dorrian of Cathedral and Napalm Death. Dorrian also owns the pioneering UK label Rise Above. The label have had a fractious relationship with Electric Wizard over the years, but all seems fine on their eponymous debut...or has it added to the brutal sounds waiting to fight their way out of your speakers? I think you’re gonna like this.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
The Night Creeper

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats have built up a large reputation since their origins in 2009, going down particularly well in the USA. The Night Creeper finds them riffing more riffily than ever before, recalling classic early heavy metal. Available on CD or as a double LP, with a variety of colours sprinkled throughout the edition.

Lucifer
Lucifer I

A new band with an old style, Lucifer are as devoted to the sound of early heavy rock as their name might suggest (even the album name is a self-titled and numbered affair: old school!). Lucifer are energetic and devoted to their music of choice, and boy does it sound like they are having fun. On Rise Above.

Cathedral
In Memorium

‘In Memorium’ is an underground doom metal classic documenting one of the most influential bands of the nineties at a time when they were first discovering their explorative feet, carving out their unique voice through a host of rich influences. Long out of print, this limited edition double LP features a bonus rare and previously unseen live performance from 1991.

Sheavy
Celestial H-Fi

Fans of Sheavy have waited long enough: for the first time ever, their Celestial Hi-Fi album has been released on vinyl! They also get two bonus tracks to tempt them back into the stoner-doom lair of these Canadians. The artwork is also reprised from the original, although in this case I’m not sure that is such a good thing.

Galley Beggar
Silence & Tears

Galley Beggar, hailing from bastion-of-a-certain-form-of-Englishness Kent, make a kind of pastoral folk-rock. I can’t think of that many contemporary folk-rock groups that are actually working within that tradition, so nice work guys. Silence & Tears is the group’s third album, released on Rise Above.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Mind Control

'Mind Control' is the third album from doomy retro rockers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats. It's a concept album centring on the brain-washing associated with cults, namely Charles Manson's hold on his devout hippy followers. Psychedelic fuzz-steeped riffs meet Beatles-esque vocals and old-school flavoured production on this fan-favourite of stoner, doom and heavy-psych. Check out the ace "Poison Apple" for a taster of what to expect from the world of Uncle Acid.

The Sorrows
Gonna Find a Cave

The Sorrows are one of history's finest freakbeat acts -- a genre tag that basically implies a reverence for the British Invasion, but with instruments played way louder. Pretty punk rock, guys -- the band covered "I'm Gonna Find a Cave', originally the work of Jimmy Radcliffe, a long time ago, but recently reformed to do just the same. This 7" is their first in decades but really, it's the same old Sorrows. 

The Oath
The Oath

The Oath are a trans-European rock and heavy metal band. Their members hail from Sweden, Germany, France and England. Their label, Rise Above, expect great things from the band and if the underground buzz is to be believed, they have every right to. Their eponymous debut is available on vinyl and CD.

Church of Misery
Thy Kingdom Scum

Disco doom metallers Church of Misery are partial to heavy riffage and serial killers, having named nearly all of their songs after them. Thy Kingdom Scum continues their ascent to excellent surprise grooves and crushing evil. The band to listen to when all the serious doom bands start to bum you the fuck out.

Cathedral
The Last Spire

And so the long and distinguished career of Cathedral draws to a close. The Last Spire is to be the band’s farewell LP, but as one might expect the group are not going gentle into that good night. This lot are one of British doom metal’s most prominent voices, after all. Track titles like ‘Entrance To Hell’ and ‘Cathedral Of The Damned’ set the tone for a wracked, sulphurous record.

Electric Wizard
Black Masses

Oof! Electric Wizard's 'Black Masses' is every bit as heavy and menacing as you'd imagine something named after a Satanic ceremony is. Monolithic doom metal riffs, sluggish tempos, and occult imagery from one of the greatest stoner groups to ever grace us - what's not to love? Out on Rise Above.
